    A real production? With Udo Kier and Barbara Crampton? With a theatrical release? :eek:

    And does that mean Puppet Master: Axis Termination got shelved?

    Axis Termination is still scheduled for August.

    This is awesome news that it's going theatrical (something the first film was intended to go to).

    My expectations are still pretty low at this point seeing as the Puppet Master films haven't been that good for a while now. I do have hopes that this will surprise me as I'd love to see another good PM film. I'm hoping they get the looks of the puppets right as characters like Blade have looked off in the recent ones when compared to the original films.
    What's Full Moons involvement here? If they have little to do with it then my expectations are on the rise.

    Don't get your hopes to high, the director's have only done terrible ultra low budget movies so far, with crappy scripts and horrible acting.
    "Wither" had some cool practical FX, but the rest was a mess.

    Maybe they will finally be able to make something watchable this time, but I'm not expecting much.

    Hrm, that is disconcerting. So do we want the devil we know with Charles Band in total control or if these new investors want something completely different like we got with Leprechaun: Origins which had enough production value to do something good but was a total waste of time? The cool practical FX in Wither sounds promising. At the very least that's what a good PM needs.

    It'll be good to get some closure on the Axis trilogy (hopefully it will be. Seems like the reboot's wheels were in motion for a year now. So Band should have been ready to.). Can't say it's particularly what I want it to be but something's better than nothing.

    my interest plummeted when reading 'puppet mayhem mixed with comedy'

    also, i had already heard of this but was under the assumption that S. Craig Zahler would also be directing, i thought Bone Tomahawk was a good mix of western and horror

    It sounds like it might be promising... but I really wish they'd stray away from the constant WWII/Nazi angle to the story. That has been done to death in the series by now... just take it in a new direction.
